I just received my upgraded cards, rules etc (25 July 2010). All the new components are of excellent quality and the service from Asmadi has been excellent!
Just out of interest, the differences I've noticed so far, other than those on the 6 revised cards I knew about, are:-
- Card backs are lighter - The small symbols to help differentiate colours are in dark ink - The background colours on some of the cards are slightly different (eg blue & purple) but for the better I think. - Compass (Age 3) has extra word "top". - Astronomy (Age 5) says "Draw and reveal .." - Classification (Age 6) says "Take into your hand all ..." - The Monument achievement card has an extra "Note ...." paragraph. - Age 5 is now "Exploration" so the card backs and the Universe achievement card have been amended but the Pre-game Setup diagram on page 3 of the new rules has not. (so what I hear you say .... ) - The achievement cards are standard sized cards
Sorry if these have been reported elsewhere.
Now I'm looking forward to playing this excellent game without modified cards.
